“Today’s news is fantastic for the entire Clerihan community following all the hard work done by the Community Council. This funding of €105,000 will go a long way in delivering what is a state of-the-art playground for children of all ages and abilities in the local area.

The proposal put forward was extremely detailed and outlined a playground that will cater for children young and old, as well as areas specifically designed for children with special needs. It was one of the strongest applications I had ever seen and I was more than happy to offer my support.

I want to congratulate the Community Council and all their volunteers for all their hard work. I wish them all the best as they begin the construction phase of this project”, said Deputy Hayes.
